Professional statement

Jennifer Krier is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Belmont, MA who integrates traditional talk therapy with body-based practices to help clients process anxiety, depression, and trauma. She often works with individuals who are seeking a sense of greater purpose or wholeness in their actions and interpersonal relationships. Her approach is rooted in sensorimotor therapy, which helps clients connect with their body in order to develop self-regulating resources, process trauma, and heal attachment wounds.

With Jennifer’s support, clients learn to mindfully observe their patterns, be less reactive to everyday occurrences and potential triggers, and feel more empowered to make decisions and move forward. She cares deeply that her clients experience tangible benefits from therapy, including increased acceptance around difficult life passages or aspects of self that have not always been appreciated. Jennifer looks forward to working with you.

Message to clients

Talking about difficulties in a confidential setting can be very helpful, whether you are: 

  • Facing a painful personal or professional issue
  • Dealing with relationship challenges from the past or in the present
  • Feeling depressed, anxious, or confused about the direction or purpose of your life
  • Know you need to make changes and don't know how to go about it

Therapy often provides relief, insight, new perspective, and renewed hope in oneself and in life.
